Show Off Your Favorite Photos with a MailPix Wrapped Photo Canvas

I have pictures of my children hanging all around our home, including a few large poster prints, but the one photo canvas I have made from a picture I took of my husband and our now nearly 9 year old son when he was just 3 is my absolute favorite.  There is just something about putting a photo on canvas that makes it seem more timeless.

Since I recently took photos of our children for our Holiday cards, I thought the photo of the 3 children together would look beautiful on canvas.  Because I wanted to adhere to spending about $100, I tried the photo out for size on a 20" x 24" MailPix canvas.  As you can see below, if you shoot your photos with a D-SLR that usually takes photos that are less boxy, this size canvas will cut off quite a bit of your photo.

When I tried the photo out on the 20" x 30" canvas, it looked perfect.  However, it was out of my budget, so I decided to use their individual portraits to make a set of 3 8" x 10" canvases.


Using the MailPix software to position and size my photos was extremely easy.  I did find it a bit odd that I could not look at the portrait in a format that was not landscape.  I actually had to tip my laptop sideways to be sure I had each photo centered properly.


Our 3 canvases arrived extremely well-packaged.  All 3 were perfect!  I am extremely happy with how the canvases kept the details, colors, and lighting of my original photos.  These canvases are wrapped around a wooden frame and neatly stapled on the back.

Below you can see how the image wraps around the sides of the frame and around to the back.  That is why it is so important to follow the guidelines when positioning your photo during the ordering process.


Since my husband had just moved into a new office, he was so proud to hang these three canvas portraits on his wall.  I had always pictured them hung three across, but he chose to hang them vertically, which fits the space much better.  He said that everyone at work made remarks about how great the portraits look.  It is hard to believe that they only cost $35 each to make.

MailPix offers 6 different sizes in photos on canvas.  In addition to these, they also offer other photo gifts, such as photo books, ornaments, calendars, bags, glass cutting boards, jigsaw puzzles, fleece blankets, and much more.  Right in time for the Holiday, when you register on MailPix, you receive 100 4" x 6" prints for free!  After you register, be sure to stop by the MailPix Deals page to see what special promotions are currently being offered!

Thank you to MailPix for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon and for providing an additional product for our contest prize.
